46 and 2 - Okeefe Music foundation (bunch o Kids) / Tool (do yourself a favor and listen)

I've only heard the TOOL version, didn't realize it was a cover.

Their cover of No Quarter is also really good.

Tool I think did the original, Okeefe did the cover, unless I misunderstood ya.

Did not realize Tool covered no quarter.  Listening now

In no particular order...

"How Can You Mend a Broken Heart"
(original by the Bee Gees, covered by Al Green) - my parents loved (and still do) love the Bee Gees, so I heard this song a lot when I was young. Al Green took that version and made it his own.

"Zombie"
(original by the Cranberries, covered by Missio) - The Cranberries is and will always be a classic. The version by Missio is great too, a little more low-key and haunting. Bad Wolves apparently just did a cover of this song as well and it's pretty good but cuts a little closer to the original.


"Feelin' Good"
(originally from a British Musical, covered best by Nina Simone) - I'd thought Simone's version was the original of this song until Michael Buble covered it a few years back, that's when I found out Simone's was also a cover. Love that voice.

"Black Hole Sun"
(original by Soundgarden, covered by Norah Jones) - I absolutely adore Norah Jones' voice, and she covered this five days after Chris Cornell's death last May.

"Creep"
(original by Radiohead, covered by Prince) - hearing Prince cover this Radiohead favorite is a thrill to me, and I watched it constantly once it was finally allowed up on YouTube. Prince was very guarded about what was up (none of his videos were up on the site until months after he passed away), and this was one of the few live performances up. Even that took a few tries before Radiohead's Thom Yorke himself said "Well tell him to unblock it...it's our f'ing song." Ban lifted. http://time.com/4140876/prince-radioh/

Top 5 Covers you like better than the original.

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - Bruce Dickinson with Godspeed Original by Black Sabbath

Paranoid - Megadeth Original by Black Sabbath
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.
Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't.
And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would.
